Changes:

 

AutoMapa 6.8 is the second maps and program update this year. The maps of Poland have been developed by the leading Polish map supplier - Geosystems Polska. They are current as of the end of February 2011. The maps of Europe, prepared by NAVTEQ – the world leader in map solutions – are available in the newest specification of Q1 2011. Such a solution creates the most current and up-to-date picture of real data from Polish and European roads. AutoMapa 6.8 introduces a new route type (Easy Route) suitable for beginning drivers, enhanced CB Radio support and new AutoMapa Traffic capabilities.

 

Number of localities in AutoMapa has increased to over 103.5 thousand. It is the most extensive database of localities among all navigation programs. The number of cities and towns, including building outlines and point addresses, has increased by 15%, reaching the record number of 5060 items. The total No. of address points in the database for Poland has exceeded 2,966,000. The new AutoMapa 6.8 includes over 639 thousand POIs, far beyond the competition.

  • Much faster determination of very long routes and routes that end close to the most developed urban areas such as Paris and its suburbs.
  • Extended algorithm to find an optimal route.
  • Changes to route points setting on paid roads and ferries when the user implements changes in the settings.
  • As soon as ETA (expected time of arrival) is clicked on the pilot panel, a section of the route from a distance is displayed first and then the whole route is visible.
  • An option added following determination of the route allows for the situation where the change of the route does not change the view of the map at all.
  • Modifications with respect to the time synchronising with GPS and adjustment to Windows CE devices, subject to the operations error concerning the change of daylight saving/winter time.
  • Software adaptations so that it can be used in new models of navigation devices.
  • Improved visibility of state borders in close-ups.
  • Numerous corrections and improvements including searching of towns, cities and streets, small locations, navigation, map visualisation, large POIs files support.
  • A number of available settings with respect to minimum speed has been increased in the warning  section.

Added (4.1.1 release):

  • Voice and visual support of THROUGH points on pilot's panel (with ETA time)
  • Notifying of toll roads
  • Option of registering map from portable device (if connected to the Internet)

Changes (4.1.1 release):

  • Option "skip roads worse than" has been changed in such a way that the route point (START, THROUGH, END) is always drawn to the closest road segment on the map, irrespective of the roads to be skipped - then the route goes beyond the banned categories of roads as soon as possible
  • Changes in walk routes
  • Changes in navigation messages
  • Changes and extension of notification system concerning POIs at the route.

New functions and changes in AutoMapa 4.0:

AutoMapa version 4 is a completely new program which has been redesigned from scratch. AutoMapa 4 features many changes from the previous versions as well as new functionalities:

  • The application architecture has been redesigned to reduce the program's memory requirement and, at the same time, speed up operation and support maps with much greater data and POI (public utility points) volume for all of Europe.
  • A 3D map view is particularly useful in devices with a horizontal display screen (landscape mode).
  • Supports the full map of Europe without the need to switch and reload maps.
  • The new, optimised  graphic interface enables the user to immediately select the point of destination:
    - New menu: "Go to..."
    - New convenient screens for POI and address search
    - Option of searching POIs which are on or near the set route
    - Additional POI pop-up menu
    - Option of memorising the last selected points on the map and address points ("Last selected" option)
    - Option of memorising the last selected POI categories, cities/towns and streets to speed up the operation of POI and address search screens
    - All AM screen components are supported with hardware keys
  • Redesigned application window, Pilot and On-Board Computer panels, new information panels, independent screen systems for devices working in landscape mode which make greater use of screen size and proportions.
  • Extended compatibility with various computer and GPS receiver models.
  • New, quick algorithms for route mapping and route recalculation during navigation.
  • Extended options of parametrising the route setting process (route types: Fast, Best, Short, Off-road Cross-country and Walking).
  • The installer features a map editor with an option of selecting any fragment of the map for installation, minimising the memory requirement for system installation.
  • Expanded option of blocking (introduced in version 3) and unblocking sections on the map (opens sections which are set as closed by default).
  • Option of determining average travelling speed on various road types for improved forecasting of travelling time.
  • The point of destination can be chosen from a PocketPC's address book (list of contacts).
  • Access to a vast number of parameters controlling AutoMapa operation from the level of configuration text files (for advanced users).
  • Fully unified code and functionality of PCC and TPC (PC) versions.
  • Option of writing maps during registration to a memory card or to the device. If a map is written to a memory card, it can be moved between devices.  
  • Option of scrolling the map during navigation by touching the screen or with the use of a touch pen with automatic exit to navigation after a while without any user action.
  • Added GPS status screens.
  • The navigation device time is synchronised with GPS system time.
  • A point on the map can be accessed as a tool bar option.
  • Additional tool bar with a description of the position (road number, address in city/town) which is independent of the bar showing the name of the street where the next manoeuvre is planned.
  • Tooltips on the map describing a selected point, POI or address.
  • New POI editing screens.
  • New POI warning system which, in addition to the warning function, displays POI information on the screen.
  • Option of displaying many GPS traces at the same time.
  • Many map components are displayed transparently (preventing the mapped route or GPS trace from obstructing the road).
  • Option of deactivating sound in the main menu.
  • Option of minimising the application window in the main menu.
  • Option of revolving the screen in the main menu.
  • Expanded voice messages.
  • Warning message is played when the safe speed limit has been exceeded.
  • The system differentiates between the average driving speed and the average speed with stops on the On-Board Computer.
  • The distance travelled from the last stop on the On-Board Computer.
  • Percentage of the travelled route and the progress bar on the On-Board Computer.
  • Additional screens with information on the mapped route: statistics, list of manoeuvres (option of printing or saving to file).
  • New convenient menu for editing route points.
  • Option of switching route mapping prompt messages on/off. The route can be mapped automatically or only after the respective option has been selected.
  • The route may bypass toll road sections and ferry crossings (parametrised options).
  • Route view option after the route has been mapped (view, summary, first manoeuvre).
  • Smooth tracing which approximates map movements between GPS read-outs.
  • New option: Go to | Point on the map
  • Sound level can be controlled in the Pilot by clicking on the manoeuvre icon.
  • Message sound level can be adjusted to speed.
  • Sound level can be set independently of system level to enable other applications (telephone, media player) to use their settings.
  • Arrival time and driving time displayed simultaneously on the Pilot.
  • Option of minimal Pilot version to economise space on the screen.
  • Automatic night mode (determined by the time of day and day of year).
  • Automatic 3D and Full Screen mode in Tracking.
  • Map alignment to the north is reinstated by clicking on the compass.
  • Route mapping progress is graphically displayed.
